Ford to expand SVT to all dealers
So I was reading on BlueOvalNews and AutoBlog, that Ford will now expand SVT by allowing all their dealers sell SVT models. There are good points and bad points to this. Previously, only dealers who passed SVT certification for sales and service proficiency could sell SVT models. Now any dealer will be allowed to seel SVT. The down side, is that dealers and salesmen that aren't up to spec will be handling your order and their service departments may not be up to SVT standards. The up side is that it will be easier for you to get an SVT model and maybe even negotiate a better price. One thing about the previous system is that there were only about 600 SVT dealers around the country, so they weren't competing with all Ford dealers. Now over 3,000 dealers will have acess to SVT models and they will have to compete for sales.
What do you think?
